Read full description of the books:
Unruly, unpredictable, love is a maddening deity. He has us singing in the rain or tearing our hair out. Or duelling with his shadows, hate, jealousy and loss. This book tangles with the paradoxes of love through the span of our lives - from rapturous love to love in 'marriage', in the family and in friendship. It investigates love's shifts and continuities from the Greeks to the present and examines our present hyper-sexualized predicament. Drawing on a wide range of sources, ALL ABOUT LOVE shows us how without the varying attachments love puts in place, we would have little of our individuality, less literature, and arguably no society. In her brilliant new book, prize-winning author of MAD, BAD AND SAD: WOMEN AND THE MIND DOCTORS, Lisa Appignanesi searches for the meaning of an emotion.
